Wet shaving's cheaper than using the newer cartridge razors and canned gels.
Although I still tell myself - and others - that this is a fact. If you only use one soap and only have one razor, sure. But when you're buying new soaps and creams and after shaves and brushes all the time, it's not.
Saw a 4-pack of Fusion cartridges for $12.99 or $13.99 yesterday. You can get 100 blades for a DE at that price.
Maybe this is only a myth for most people.
